The Texarkana Arkansas Police Department has arrested Kyle Johnson, W/M 22yoa, early this morning. He is a corrections officer employed at the Bi-State Jail. This arrest is the direct result of a confidential informant supplying information to the TAPD Criminal Investigation Division that a correctional officer was introducing contraband into the jail.
The information developed led undercover investigators to believe the planned contraband introduction into the facility consisted of marijuana and tobacco. Corrections Officer Kyle Johnson has been charged with furnishing, possessing, or using prohibited articles in a correctional facility, a felony crime.
